Bills Sign Marshawn Lynch; Quick Camp Update

New, comment

As was reported last night at Rumblings by user nickfeely8 (thanks Feely), the Bills have signed first-round pick RB Marshawn Lynch. Yahoo is reporting the monetary aspect of the deal as 5 years, $19 million with $10.3 million guaranteed. The signing means that Lynch will be in camp this morning for his first full practice, leaving the Bills just one man short (Darwin Walker) of full attendance. Here's a quote from the write-up on the official site:

Lynch is fully expected to be the featured tailback as a rookie though head coach Dick Jauron is still leaning in favor of a committee approach.

There better be a committee approach to start, because as good as Marshawn has been, he's never carried a full rushing load. Keep the pressure off the kid while he learns the ropes, and let him grow into his role. Sounds like Jauron's got a good plan.

Friday Morning Camp Update
Chris Brown (via his blog) is reporting that J.P. Losman is back working out today after missing yesterday's workouts with a sore back. So far it sounds like he's only working in drills; I'll be keeping an eye on the depth of his participation today for sure.

Also, Peerless Price is practicing fully despite his injured pinky finger. Looks like the team really is at 100% (or 98% if you still count Walker).

Much, much more to come on today's two practices later on today. Stay tuned, and in the meantime, check out the Around the AFC East posts below!
